Original Press Release:

Datakey Electronics, Inc. Releases the KeyLink(TM) III / SlimLink(TM) III Reader/Writers: Substantially Increases Speed for Serial Flash Data Carriers

March 1, 2007. Savage, MN - Datakey Electronics, Inc., manufacturer of rugged, re-programmable memory Keys and Tokens is now shipping the new KeyLink(TM) III and SlimLink(TM) III Reader/Writers. These devices were designed specifically to optimize throughput speeds when used with SPI-flash memory Keys and Tokens. In addition to our serial flash products, these Readers also support interchangeable use of all our standard serial EEPROM products including those that utilize Microwire, I2C and SPI interface protocols.

These new Reader/Writers are ideal for developments and programming high-capacity SPI-Flash Keys and Tokens (SFK/SFT/SFX). These 1 to 32Mbit Keys and Tokens have become increasingly popular for data transfer applications such as in-field firmware updates, data logging and "recipe" uploading. The KeyLink III / SlimLink III have a USB interface and offer typical write speeds of 1.2Mbits/sec-allowing the user to write the entire contents of a 1MByte data carrier in under 7 seconds-an improvement of more than one hundred-fold from the prior generation. These new products also offer a simple migration for existing applications.

The KeyLink III/SlimLink III also have the capability to read/write unique indentifier Keys and Tokens. These products allow OEM designers to implement copy-proof data carrier applications. While the most common application for the KeyLink III / SlimLink III is product development, these products are entirely suitable for field deployment (re-sale) by OEM users of Datakey Electronics' Keys and Tokens. They have been designed to yield better price flexibility at high volumes than earlier models. They can also be provided in panel-mount configurations (Keytroller(TM) III / Slimtroller(TM) III).

Datakey Electronics' also offers KeyLink III / SlimLink III Development Kits. These Development Kits include:

· New KeyLink III or SlimLink III Reader/Writer (USB) with Cable
· Customer-specified Key or Token samples
· Sample Keyceptacles® or Receptacles
· Our new & improved PC demo software with source code
· User's Reference Manual
